A Biblical Walk Through the Mass
Do you understand the meaning behind the parts of the Mass? In his video-based study A Biblical Walk Through the Mass, Dr. Edward Sri explores the roots of the words and gestures we experience at Mass and explains their profound significance. In this study, you will come to know and understand the Mass as never before, leading you to a richer, more fruitful worship experience.

Morning classes will be held beginning April 28th from 9:30-11:30 AM and continuing every Friday for 5 weeks. There is a $20 fee for study materials.

Souper Bowl of Caring
The countdown is on! Super Bowl Sunday falls on February 5th this year. Last year the FBI Youth Ministry participated in the Souper Bowl of Caring fundraiser and, thanks to your generosity, they raised $461.71 to support the Open Pantry. Once again, the FBI Youth Ministry kids will be present, with soup pots in hand, following all Masses on the weekend of February 4th & 5th to accept your generous donations for this worthy cause. The need is greater than ever this year. This is just a reminder that there’s still time to get in shape, dust off your uniforms and join the team to help tackle hunger in our community.
St. Catherine of Siena will offer Exposition and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament for the Lenten season beginning in March. To ensure the safety of the Eucharist and provide this opportunity to all, volunteers are needed to safeguard the Blessed Sacrament. Please consider signing up for at least a Half an hour of adoration during Lent. Contact Jackie Enriques at 530-6805 to schedule time.
